"Extra Fine Merino DK" from Jaeger is a soft, classic wool in both solids and variegateds. Because of its softness and fiber strength, it is most often used for fall and winter outfits such as jackets, coats, pullovers, cardigans and warm accessories.

To me this is the definitive article for DK yarns. It is sleek, plush, bouncy, comes in a great array of colors, super soft, available everywhere. It is slightly $$ but worth every penny. Holds up well, fun to knit, easy to slip into daydreams while you are knitting with it!

I love this yarn. I made a HUGE cabled afghan for my son from this and it is beautiful. The yarn is soft and luxurious to the touch and really a joy. I bought two other colors just to have around for an emergency!

I concur with the others - this is the ultimate in Dk yarn. What a pleasure to knit with! Lots of spring and loft to the yarn, never had a problem with splitting, and the end result is always beautiful. It is very easy to maintain consistent tension, which allows for "auto pilot" knitting. I have used the dark colors without any bleeding in the wash. Can't say enough good things about this yarn.

I am looking for 1 ball of #936 Oatmeal lot # 0100 to finish a project. I have several other dye lots and would be willing help someone out who is in the same predicament. This is great yarn. I can't believe it has been discontinued!
